Baler Learning Club
The Baler Learning Club is hosted at Baler Primary School in a relaxed working space that gives students the opportunity to improve their literacy and numeracy skills, access enrichment activities, and be creative. Students from Years 1 – 6 attend the Learning Club twice a week after school.
The program focuses on cross-curricular activities that support and develop students’ knowledge in literacy and STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths). Learning Club sessions open with a healthy afternoon tea, kindly provided by the school canteen, followed by study groups where students have specialist tutoring to focus extensively on reading fluency and reading comprehension.
Dedicated tutors also provide targeted support for each individual student based on consultations that the Program Coordinator regularly holds with classroom teachers to identify areas of need that can be addressed through regular practice and appropriate intervention.
